The performance honors the legacy of Olga Coelho, one of the most significant Brazilian musicians of all time. Rooted firmly in songs of her Brazilian homeland, Ms. Coelho’s recitals embraced music from all over the world. She sang fluently in many languages, including Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, French, English, and even Maori. Reflecting the artist’s wide-ranging musical interests, this program will feature some of the best-known folk songs of the Americas, arranged by the legendary Andrés Segovia, as well as the classical masterpieces of Russia and Europe by Rimski-Korsakov, Villa-Lobos, De Falla, Scarlatti, and The Queen Marie-Antoinette.
